The Restoration of Poplar Island (Fall Speaker Series 2018)

How does an island in the Chesapeake Bay go from 1,140 acres to less than 5 acres, and then rebound back to 1,140 again? Join Rachael Gilde, an Environmental Specialist with the Maryland Environmental Service, to explore how the placement of dredged material is restoring a once-disappearing island to a unique and thriving wildlife habitat within Chesapeake Bay, while also supporting the maritime industry in the Chesapeake. Part of the Fall Speaker Series: Exploring the Chesapeake: Mapping the Bay Cost per person is $7.50 per session, with a 20% discount for members. Register online for all five sessions using the code SPEAKER5 and receive an additional discount. All programs will be held in CBMM’s Van Lennep Auditorium. Limited seating is available.
